Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster has alleged that he was racially abused by an opponent during his team's UEFA Youth League match today.

The Reds beat Spartak Moscow 2-0 at Prenton Park on Wednesday.

Brewster told referee Mohammed Al-Hakim about the incident of abuse, and the club have also lodged a formal complaint with UEFA.

Liverpool under-19 coach Steven Gerrard did not comment further after the match, saying: "It's difficult for me to comment on it right now. It's something that the club will look into and deal with. I'd rather talk about Rhian Brewster's performance.

"I don't want to take any gloss off that because he was superb. The only thing that was missing from his performance was a goal. He held the ball up so well and put in a shift for us."
